Broken Harbor book cover by Tana French

Book Review: Broken Harbor, a Murder Mystery by Tana French

The Bottom Line: A hard-nosed psychological thriller that ranks as French’s best yet.

Thriller Review – Brad Thor’s Hidden Order

Brad Thor’s hero, Scot Harvath, just can’t catch a break.

Review: Alex Berenson’s The Night Ranger

Until now, Alex Berenson’s John Wells series was one of diminishing returns. After an amazing debut in The Faithful Spy, the thriller in which we were introduced to the CIA operative that nearly went too deep in his undercover role with the Taliban, and a good sophomore outing, there’s been little to write about. Fortunately, […]

Barry Eisler Takes Ownership of Book Rights, Renames Books

One of our favorites, Barry Eisler, has managed to own his entire back catalog of John Rain thrillers. We couldn’t be more pleased.  To celebrate the occasion, he’s renamed his books! Marketing-wise, that’s a pretty risky move. It’ll no doubt make it more difficult for people to find his back catalog (since the old titles […]

Instant Classic: Ryan Gosling in The Place Beyond the Pines

Hangman's Daughter Book

Book Review: The Hangman’s Daughter, a Historical Mystery by Oliver Pötzsch

The bottom line: A meticulously researched historical thriller that employs 17th century superstitions to create a highly original read that’s impossible to put down. By the time you finish the third chapter, you’ll be thanking your lucky stars that you live in the 21st century.

The Best Thrillers of 2012

These books span several subgenres, and represent those that we enjoyed most, in no particular order. SecondWorld, by Jeremy Robinson To be honest, this was a huge surprise. Robinson’s work typically leans more toward the fantasy genre, which isn’t our cup of tea. But once we got past the campy first chapter set in 1940s […]
